In a sketchy walk up on 27th and 7th in New York City I found myself sitting across from an aged woman reading me my future on 3 tarot cards. For $15 I learned about how my year would go and how I would feel during each month. I learned that I'm going to fall in love with someone I already have a friendship with and eerily enough described to me were brief instances that proved her knowledge.
But my inner skeptical self felt that you make your own future and just because someone tells you you are going to be with someone doesn't actually mean that the person will feel the same. Then why did I haul myself 20 blocks to hear what this person had to say and then pay for it?
I believe your actions cause events to set in motion and maybe people like to hear their future so they can build up the confidence to pursue what they already had on their mind. I also believe that people seek advice from others, and in my case an astrologist, because they already know the answer but they hope to get a different one. But while I have my beliefs I am a sucker for superstition, Karma being a total bitch and I receive a romantic horoscope daily to my blackberry. Don't judge me.
In regards to my future I will let you know how that one goes, but until then do you believe that astrology can predict your future love life?
